When a baby elephant is orphaned, it is sometimes because its mother and family have been killed by poachers in the ivory trade. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, Kenya rescues these orphans and reintegrates them back into the wild herds of Tsavo National Park. In addition to elephant rescue and rehabilitation the DSWT also funds anti-poaching units to patrol the park and conservation efforts to limit conflict between humans and elephants over natural resources.

Wayne Adams and Catherine King are the artists behind Freedom Cove - a floating island built by the couple using just a handsaw and hammer. The floating compound is located off of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada and is completely sustainable. Even their food comes from home gardens and fishing.
